It means That ur heart rhythm is irregular may be only ventricular premature beats or some other arrhythemia.Get ur Dr for an ECG checkup & if the arrhythmia doesnot show in ECG u can get a 24 hrs ECG recording by way of Halter monitor which is a small device & will record all irregualrity when they occuar by this ur Dr can diagnose the type of arrthymia & can prescribe medicine accordingly bcaz anti arrythmic drugs are of different class & function sholdn't take any medicine randomly . Bcaz if ur waiting for CABG that means u have undergone angiography & condition requires immediate attention .These arrthymias r part of angina & poor circulation of coronaries .

I m sixteen years old. and about a year ago, this thing happened to me that was so wierd. I was sitting down, with a couple of friends when my heart started racing as though i just ran a mile! like it was beating super fast. it lasted about maybe less than a minute. That was the first time i experienced it. After that Ill get it sometimes out of the blue, usually when I laugh, then my heart just starts going. I panic, and probably that just makes it beat faster but idk, i dont feel dizzy, or anything. theres no pain. i just put my hand to my heart and its beatingggg suppeerrrr fastt. im scared. its happened about 5 times already? in about a year or a lil more. But sometimes ill hold my breath and then my heart rate goes back to its normal way, doesnt always work tho. Any idea what it might be???

My 14yr old very physically active daughter always complains her heart double beats and skips. She states that after vigorous exercise her heart rate goes crazy and she can barely catch her breath. I took her pulse at rest on her neck and it was 102/ min. I did in fact feel it double thump with clear skips. Should I be concerned about this?

I am having a fast pulse rate and have taken Naproxen for some neck pain. I do take a 20mg ose of Lisinopril QD for an irregular heartbeat previously. Should I take some ASA now or a Lisinopril (took this at 8 am 5/31. I have taken 1 mg of Ativan a while ago but it has not helped.
